ClimateKihei sits on the sunniest, driest part of Maui and beckons to vacationers in search of miles of beautiful beaches. The weather here is consistently warm throughout the year. September tends to be the warmest month, though, with temperatures that can top out around 88 degrees, while the coldest month of February rarely dips below the mid-60s. Kihei is ideal for a winter escape from cold weather. Rain in Kihei is infrequent, but if you plan to venture to other parts of Maui, it’s a good idea to pack a light raincoat or an umbrella.
Things to doThe first stop for many while staying in Kihei vacation rentals is the town’s beautiful coastline. The town boasts six miles of beaches, including the three beaches of Kamaole, Kalama Beach Park, Kalpolepo, and Waipulani. Each offers crystalline, sugar-sand beaches and clear, temperate waters that invite hours of swimming, surfing, and snorkeling around the reefs. The beaches are patrolled by lifeguards during peak hours, and each offer some shady spots for a respite from the sun.
Extreme sports-enthusiasts will relish a trip out on the Pacific with Blue Water Rafting. Excursions include sea cave exploration, snorkeling with sea turtles and manta rays, and swimming with dolphins. Expert surfers will find challenges with the natural wind channel at Maalaea Beach, which is quite effective at forming excellent waves.
If observing nature is on the itinerary, you’ll enjoy the whale watching tours with Redline Rafting. The tours are limited to only 24 passengers at a time and the vessels provide ultimate viewing of humpback whales. The Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is also located in Kihei and offers fascinating exhibits and aquariums. Its visitor’s education center gives information about the whale season and other creatures that inhabit the area, including turtles, dolphins, and Hawaiian monk seals. For a unique perspective, aerial tours via seaplane or helicopter reveal extraordinary volcanic formations, verdant greenery, and unparalleled photographic prospects.
Animal-lovers will want to spend time at Kealia Pond, which is part of the National Wildlife Conservation District. The area features a variety of birddlife, including the endangered Hawaiian stilts and coots.
ShoppingIf shopping is desired, there are several malls and trendy shops that feature unusual merchandise, beachwear, and necessities. For shopping away from the tourist-visited areas, Kalama Village is steeped in native culture, offering local one-of-a-kind souvenirs and gifts. The open-air market has more than 40 shops and is a lush oasis for an afternoon walk. After working up an appetite searching for souvenirs, stop by Yee’s Orchard and Fruit Stand to pick up some treats to enjoy in the comfort of one of the many Kihei vacation rentals. Tutu’s Pantry is another local shop worth stopping to visit. It boasts a variety of Maui-made jams, butters, sauces, and seasonings.
Food & DiningKihei’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean supplies the local restaurants with luscious seafood year-round. The South Maui Fish Company food truck serves up fresh poke bowls, plates full of grilled fish and mouthwatering filets. At Coconut’s Fish Café, fish tacos and other health-conscious items are the favorites. The restaurant invites everyone to enjoy their food and join the “ohana” (family). If you’re just looking for a refreshing treat then Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice and Peace Love Shave Ice are must-visits.
Brimming with activity and beauty, Kihei has something to entertain all ages and interests. Take in the lush landscape or relax in the comfort of Kihei vacation rentals. No matter how you choose to spend your stay, you won’t be disappointed by this island oasis.
